The extra items for the various benefits approved by the health insurance can quickly add up to a considerable amount, especially for those who are temporarily seriously or permanently ill.

In statutory health insurance, insured persons are entitled to benefits that prevent illnesses or serve to treat illnesses. The Patients’ Rights Act stipulates that health insurance funds must decide on applications for benefits (e.g. for therapeutic appliances and aids, domestic help, domestic nursing care) within three weeks of receipt of the application. If an expert opinion is required, in particular from the Medical Service of the health insurance funds, the health insurance funds must decide within five weeks of receipt of the application whether the service is to be approved. If it is unable to meet the deadline, it must inform the insured person in good time and in writing, stating its reasons. If no written justification is given after the expiry of the deadline, the application for a benefit shall be deemed to have been approved. Insured persons can then procure the required benefit themselves and invoice the Fund.

10 Top activities on the Dutch coast with children – A guest article

(Advertising) Kilometres of sandy beaches and unspoilt dunes: The Dutch coast stretches from Zealand via South and North Holland up to the North Sea islands. The Netherlands is well known for its child friendliness and has a lot to offer children. If you’re planning a family holiday in the Netherlands, you won’t be bored with the following tips.

Fun in a bottle at the beach – Family friendly beaches in Holland

The child-friendliness of the Dutch is also reflected on the beaches: time and again you will discover small playgrounds, bouncy castles and trampolines in the sand, and the risk of injury is relatively low in the soft sand.

The body temperature is, as the name suggests, the temperature of a human or animal body. Normally this should be between 35.8°C and 37.2°C in humans. But what if the body temperature is higher? What causes can this have and how can increased temperature be treated? These questions are answered below.

What is elevated temperature?

First of all, it must be defined when a person suffers from increased temperature and when it begins to degenerate into fever. We speak of an increased temperature when the body temperature has not yet exceeded 38.0°C. This is the time when the body temperature is increased.

Caries is hardly common among children any more, but another dental disease is puzzling: With the MIH, teeth can simply break away. The disorder is already caused at baby age – or even earlier. What is behind it? An interview.

Almost one third of all twelve-year-olds in Germany are affected: Their teeth are free of caries and yet at least one tooth has white or yellowish-brown spots, is sometimes very sensitive to touch and, if things get bad, simply crumbles away. The disease is called molar incision hypomineralisation, or MIH for short. This sounds bulky, but describes well what it is all about: Never is the entire child’s dentition affected by the disease, but it is the first permanent molar teeth that the dentist calls six-year molars, as well as the upper front teeth, the incisors. The reason for the discomfort is that the enamel of these teeth lacks minerals – hence hypomineralization.

From Josefine Janert

Father Andreas Knapp works in Leipzig with refugees of all religions. But again and again he encounters problems which Christian refugees from the Middle East have here – due to mobbing by Muslim fellow refugees.

Andreas Knapp: “Hello!”

Andreas Knapp: “What are you looking for? Ah! But that’s very bad. You need a liberation. Exemption from the radio licence fee. You have to go to the job centre. “

Wednesday afternoon in Leipzig’s Grünau prefabricated district: Andreas Knapp looks at the letter that an agitated woman holds out to him. The 58-year-old priest often meets people who spontaneously ask him for help. Knapp has founded an initiative with neighbours and members of the Catholic student community. They take care of refugees on a voluntary basis, regardless of their religion. They help children with their homework and their parents with everyday things.

The waiting room is equipped with real aircraft seats. A part of the ceiling was designed in the form of a ceiling sail as an aircraft wing.

A visit to the kidsdocs-air children’s dental practice in Berlin-Steglitz is intended to be a positive experience for the little patients, so that fear of the dentist does not arise in the first place. Accordingly, the entire appearance of the new practice was imaginatively designed under the leitmotif “Flying”.

The planning of this extraordinary practical concept was carried out by the interior architects planbar 3 from Berlin. The finishing work was carried out by the specialist company Möbel Damm GmbH with the aid of dry construction systems made of sheetrock, with which the special shapes of the aircraft elements could be expertly created.

In modern anaesthesia, sleep anaesthesia can be performed at the dentist’s office on an outpatient basis.

In cases of great dental anxiety (dental phobia), the dentist is often required to perform an analgosedation, which is commonly referred to as twilight sleep or sleep anesthesia. In sleep anaesthesia (analgosedation), a combination of pain-relieving medication with soothing substances eliminates pain and relaxes the dentist to sleep, and painkillers are added during dental sedation to prevent toothache, jaw pain and swelling after the operation.
